The Qatari body tasked with overseeing the FINA Swimming World Cup in Doha removed an Israeli flag from outside one of its venues, and state broadcasters whited out the Israeli flag on the swimming lanes as they were seen on TV, Doha News reports.
The FINA code of ethics states that any tournament shall have “no discrimination on the basis of gender, race, religion or political opinion.” Neither Qatari officials nor FINA have responded to inquiries over the flag’s removal.
